From the outside you wouldn't expect much. Going inside you still would not expect much. However, the friendly english speaking host helped us with the menu. Each dish could have deserved a "Michelin Star" My favorite was the foie gras over apricot confit appetizer. All the desserts were beautifully presented. If they added a little atmosphere it could be a... More

This little plainly furnished restaurant provided our best food during a six day visit to Aix. We ate at many fine, Trip Advisor recommended, restaurants in Provence....Vintrepide had the most interesting, though limited, menu. Don't miss this little gem.

Almost everything about Vintrepide was wonderful. Our waiter was alert and helpful, and he recommended an excellent red Bandol (Tempier). Every one of our dishes was excellent. The price was moderate for a restaurant that offers an experience of this quality. At another restaurant, you could spend more and not have such fine food. The bread was acceptable but not... More

We thought this was an amazing restaurant and it represented exceptional value. The menu includes four entrees, four mains and four desserts every day which change according to what is available at the market. We enjoyed delicious asparagus, fabulous Sea Bream, rabbit and fine Provencal cheeses served by a waiter with a fine sense of humour and while the service... More

First, the fish is named Bubbles - he is the boss. from the first plate that came to the table to the last crumb left behind - everything was perfect. The food was incredible, the ambiance perfect and the service divine. If you are looking for a place that you can enjoy the company you are dining with as well... More

This is my second trip to Aix en Provence in six months. I was here for six days in September and ten days this trip. To date, my favorite dinner restaurant is Vintripide, the food, the service and the ambience are great. The space is small, the noise level made conversation easy, the chairs and tables are spaced beautifully, everything... More

A cosy French restaurant managed by the onwers. One is a great Sommeliere who made a wonderful "Wine list" and the other is the Chef who changes the menu options every two weeks in order to always cook with "local seasonal ingredients". The prices are honest, too!

Absolutely zero criticism of the food: it was surprising, delicious, original and refined, and with decent-sized servings. Very helpful and friendly waiter, too. The "but" is the price: very expensive and no set menu offered, only à la carte. The setting is also very ordinary. If the owners redecorated their restaurant and brought the prices down, they would be nearing... More

We had dinner at Vintrepide on Saturday Night. I chose 2 appetizers. The fois gras at 16€ for a tiny slice of fois gras (2 bites) was exorbitant in my opinion!! I then had Cailettes which was described as a warm terrine of pork and v,eal. In actuality, it was 3 tiny, unappealing meatballs with the addition of liver mixed.... More

this restaurant offers you a perfect blend of everything. Good variety of tastes, handwritten menu (translated on demand into english), nice choices of - in between - aperitifs (for free) and great wines. Very pleasant waiter. Highly recommended. Again, as someone already mentioned: the dinner we had, was at least as good as we had at a michelin-star restaurant, but... More
